7:35 am
>> that is true. as of saturday, retailers, merchants that you shop at, are only having to pay half as much to the banks every time you swipe your debit card banks will lose a lot of money around $6 billion. >> that is what the prediction is. so they are looking for ways to make up this lost revenue,. >> some banks it is maybe $5 a month you might thing i can deal with that inconvenience if you look at it in the big picture you are really paying to use your own money how can we get around this. >> well, first of all, this applies to people who use their debit cards for purchases, if all you use your debit card for is take money out of the atm it will not effect you more and more people are using debit cards it is more popular than credit cards so obviously, one thing you can do is decide that you are going to use cash, or old fashioned things, checks or go back to credit cards. but if you don't want to do
7:36 am
that, then you may have to switch banks,. >> is there a down side jone so if i use one of these banks, bank of america i go to wherever and use my credit option is there a down side to that for me as opposed to using debit. >> well, the main difference obviously is if you use your credit card you have to pay it off each month or accrue interest in general when you use a debit card it is coming out of your checking account unless you over draw your checking account it doesn't or didn't cost you anything. now with the bank issued, with that debit card i can use the credit option is that going to be a better bet? >> no. >> that is fine. >> no, you will still pay the fee. >> okay. >> as soon as you swipe that debit card, to pay for something or if you use it for an automatic debit, if you have your health club membership deducted automatically from your account, that will trigger the fee. >> okay. >> so i can't get around it by
7:37 am
yes, this is a debit option on my bank issued card i am still going to get the fee. that is great to know. >> what -- we said there are still some perks out there or ways to get around it with your banks how do we make the best of our bank our big bank if we don't want to change. >> well, if you want to stay with the bank where you already have your account obviously you are going to have to change your banking habits. you just won't be able to use that debit card except to get cash. >> okay. >> we are showing some free services here, one of them bank of america, avoid monthly fees banking online those are some ways to use it to your benefit. >> sure bank of america, started a new e checking account and that does have perks and won't -- well, it won't trigger at least a monthly fee i am not sure bank of america hasn't announced exactly how they are going to implement their new monthly debit card fee i don't know if
7:38 am
that each checking account will have a $5 fee but there are banks that don't. >> want viewers to know we are showing really great perks or things you can get out of your bank these days listed by bank go to myfoxdc.com for all that information because i want to also ask you about credit unions, a lot of people are talking maybe this is the way to go. benefits to using a credit union versus a bank. >> in general, credit union fees are lower if they pay interest the interest is a little higher and if you are going to them to get a mortgage or loan usually rates are a little bit better. >> okay if we want to stick with the bank, what are the best ones still in our area? >> well, you don't have to stick you know in our area, that is one thing there are national banks usaa has very good checking account and only have to deposit $25 has no fees
7:39 am
it will reimburse atm fees any where in the country and schwab the brokerage has a checking account you can open with any amount if you are a fidelity customer you can have a checking account there all reimburse your atm fees. >> it just seems like a pain to switch we are so connected to our banks with the internet option what is the headline should you switch if you don't want the get these fees or stay and try no navigate around it. >> well, it really depends whether you use our debit card all the time if you are the kind of person who wants to make sure you don't have any interest charges on your credit card account, and you use that debit card all the time you have to weigh, is $60 a month worth the convenience. >> okay. >> that is hard questions and convenience is the big word. >> of course and the one benefit of all of these big

michael jackson's doctor begins later this morning, dr. murray is accused of administering a lethal dose of a powerful anaesthetic to the pop star. last week, the er doctor testified dr. murray never told them he administered prof propofol -- propofol. nine justices will have to decide whether to insert themselves into the battle over the president's health care reform bill stacy good morning. >> reporter: that is one of several decisions they will have to agree to make they have said they will take 49 cases, they will take several dozen more before their docket is set. health care rerelation is a potential case they may decide the rule upon.
8:07 am
yesterday, several chief juses, partook in the traditional red mass that happened at st. mathew's cathedral, a tradition where the justices pray for wisdom as they begin their session in hopes of having a good year. they must consider whether or not they are going to hear arguments about that health care reform law. now you have both the states that are challenging the law as well as administration itself telling the supreme court you need to decide this issue now likelihood of supreme court review has increased and all these factors together make it a pretty difficult invitation for the supreme court to turn down. >> they have a lot of other things to consider too. one point, whether or not law enforcement has the right to follow a suspect using gps degree knowledge before they have observing -- technology before they have obtained a warrant. >> do children of illegal
8:08 am
immigrants, who bare no responsibility for their status, be deported. stacy cohen back to you. a little more insight into this, joining us with more on these big cases, a fellow in law and governor university washington college of law. good to see you this morning. >> good morning. >> let's talk about these what do you see as the biggest case right now obviously health care is grabbing the headlines you look at things in adegrees to the headlines from the legal procedure part of this, is health care going to be the biggest thing they cover. >> as stacy was saying you have to divide this into cases the court has already said it will hear and cases coming down the road health care is in the down the road pile, cases the court is already going to hear, a couple big first amendment cases and gps case stacy mentioned i think will be very exciting to watch. >> talk about that with the gps as stacy mentioned, whether or not they could use, police and
8:09 am
law enforcement could use gps devices on vehicles without a search warrant. >> this happens in a case where there was a search warrant expired before they put the gps device on the car this is a big drug case, jones was sentenced to life in pray prison he is -- prison he is challenging his conviction because they followed his wife's car without a warrant because they put gps on it. >> law enforcement going to keep an eye on that. what else are you going to keep an eye on. >> a case that involves a tv network by the name of fox. >> heard about that. >> raises an important first amendment question, ftc wants to regulate indecency on the airways, foul language and nudity, federal appeals court in new york said ftc hasn't done it right, rules were too
8:10 am
vague broadcasters would not be able to figure out how to follow it. that will be heard in january, enormous ramifications. >> what about other cases that fall into the other category, things that may come along farther down the road what are we looking for. >> health care is important before we talk about that quickly, there is a really important affirmative action case coming down the road. affirmative action and higher education university of texas a lot of compelling reasons why the court will want to hear that case it is not a certainty but quite likely, the big arizona immigration case, arizona wants law enforcement in the state to check the papers of everybody who is arrested to see if they are illegal immigrants, the united states said that interfered with federal immigration enforcement so far the arizona law is blocked arizona is asking the supreme court to hear that one that will be a big one. >> health care of course,
8:11 am
enormous. >> the court has to figure out how it wants to approach this, the obvious issue is whether congress has the power to force everybody to in essence, have health insurance or pay a penalty but there are a couple bumps in the road along the way as to whether the court can get to that issue now. >> stacy mentioned if number of cases they have agreed to take on now. do we expect to see more and more added on. >> right they are two thirds of the way there, they have agreed to hear 49 and they could add another 30 or so between now and january. >> is that average for a session. >> yeah i don't think they will get to 30. >> all right we will see what happens, good to see you. >> glad to be here. >> alison back to you. 8:11 a.m. on monday morning major battle brewing over a bear in idaho father says he was forced to shoot and kill a grizzly cub when it got too close to his family the federal government is pressing charges, a closer look at this case when we come

8:16 am
seeing wildlife. when his wife screamed, there were three grizzly bears, close to his home. he grabbed his hunting rifle and shot the closest one. he faces a possible $50,000 fine and year in jail. >> unbelievable outside the scope of reality for people to understand. >> reporter: after public out cry the u.s. attorney cut a deal dumping the criminal charge but forcing hill to pay a $1,000 fine plus some $20,000 in legal fees. >> he paid the fine because he took a bear in violation of the endangered species act even if a bear is being a nuisance there are procedures outlined to do that. >> reporter: the u.s. attorney concedes he fired the first two shots legally in defense of his family but where he crossed the line was taking the third and final shot, after he knew his kids were inside the house. he said it is not only a humane
8:17 am
thing to do but a wounded grizzly is a dangerous grizzly. >> we have gotten to the point in this country where people are restricted from ability to defend their homes, family and property from large, dangerous animals unpredictable and known to kill people. >> reporter: grizzly attacks are up this year experts blame a late spring snow forcing the animals off the mountain in search of food. not a bear population, while improving is fragile. >> there are not many bears out there we can't spare them we don't want people killing them if they didn't absolutely have to. many conservation mists wish they had taken this killing to court but most locals says the the endangered species act that needs an overhaul putting people before dangerous predators. the weather might have you craving something hot like chilly but you will have to get it somewhere other than bens. when workers got there this

8:20 am
week progresses high today 57 degrees scattered showers here and there during the day and evening, tomorrow breezy, 66 for your high, wednesday, sunny and 72, yes. that is going to feel good thursday not a bad day and frankly neither is friday. that is a look at what is happen being weather now an update on traffic for that, we go to julie wright. hey, you had a twitter follower ask me if we would see sunny and 85 again what i have to do is look at the long term forecast i think it is not likely but remember, always late october we get a few days where we get some of that warmth back it is possible but i will look into it further. >> those are the days i will take extra vacation >> no, you will want to be here for those days. >> well, i didn't say i would be working. >> i hear you. >> all right. let me tell you it has been busy first day back off vacation accidents galore. outer loop of the belt way

8:22 am
speed but also has some power we saw flashes of that yesterday. steve watch this, 39-yard run he basically blows by a safety with a great move, if we can get another look at that too. terrain is a little bit of a different back from high tower more of ad toker, not negative but then -- more of a fodder, not a negative but then to have the speed and combination pretty impressive. 135-yards, 19 carries you and i talked about it all morning long this is the guy they need because jim high tower is what he is, a solid back, he is more of a home run hitter maybe terrain can be a change of pace back but get 10 carries if he can equally distribute those. >> is there enough time? >> i think with the running game you can you don't have to have one guy you necessarily feed, 20, 25 times back in the old days i got to get in the
8:23 am
rhythm of the game, you can do that with ten carries, that will extend those legs as you get the week 14, 15, 16. good reps yesterday. >> this comes with a asterisk. >> there was one special throw, santana moss. first touchdown of the day for the skins what makes this throw better, this is the guy who had two big throws in a row we talked about 3rd down inefficiency against dallas they were efficient in the the first half and then the special, here to moss the pressure comes right into his face he gets it, gets hit and a perfect timing throw there, and moss with exceptional job of getting it you can see it there better those are two very good things the best thing of all was defense yesterday s brian
8:24 am
arapahoe is terrific, two and a half sacks. if you follow twitter on twitter everybody says, he got held. >> he says he gets held on every play. >> again almost a complement you got the hold the great one the bad ones you just block the great ones you got to hold. they hold him all the time. they are going the have to hold carrigan too. 7 sacks for defense. think about it they have only given up 20 points, once to arizona everything else has been in the teens. >> you play like that, what a turn around from last year. >> interesting too we talk about, especially the guys, the linebacker make a push, talking about kerrigan and arapahoe, next stop michael vick. >> two weeks to game plan you have to figure out are you going spy on michael vick. but you know it will be an
8:25 am

8:35 am
challenge competition that we held in santa rosa california, and the emphasis on the competition was for hyper efficient aircraft. these aircraft get better than 200 miles per gallon, per passenger, compared to a conventional light aircraft that gets 10 to 20 miles per gallon even transport aircraft only get 70 miles per gallon. as a pilot did you have a favorite in the competition? have you been able to fly any of these aircraft? >> oh, they are actually all my favorites they are beautiful in their own way and the grace that these aircraft have in order to be so efficient, is like art and science coming together and i am looking forward to flying them some time in the near future. >> what is the biggest challenge joe when it comes to planes using green fuel and
8:36 am
what is the advantage for us? >> well, the advantage to green aviation is to potentially eliminate need for fossil fuels and eliminate emissions associated with them and ability to fly with just electricity, means that we could eventually have an aircraft that had no emissions whatsoever. and that is a wonderful opportunity for the future. >> now, the challenge, competition is always great there is prize money on the table here i got to imagine nasa has plans for green fuel in the future , what is the hope for nasa from this challenge? yes, what we are trying to do is invent the future here and develop new technologies that cannot only help nasa achieve its missions objectives but create jobs and hopefully spawn a new industry for
8:37 am
electric and high efficiency aircraft. >> if you could just talk about the prize a little bit, nasa and the taxpayer what are we getting out of the challenge and also what is the winner getting? there is a cash prize associated with this too. >> yes, there is about a million and a half dollars, the largest prize in aviation what we have done, with this prize, is we have turned the development -- the cost equation for development of technology on its head here we only pay when we get results, and winners of course are going to be enjoying that prize but nasa will be enjoying the results of technology development and incredible leverage we have gotten in the sense competitors have spent much more than we are giving out in the prize, and we only give the prize if they achieve the objective that we set for them, 200 miles for gallon at 100 miles per hour it is a
8:38 am
great opportunity for nasa to take advantage of this technology. joe pir rush, nasa chief -- parish, nasa chief and also a pilot. if you are looking for work stay tuned more on a job fair taking place today. andy rooney signed off 60 minutes, more on last night's goodbye [ mom ] hey guys. guys...
